Beautiful and stunning location.

Im not sure if this was my fault not reading the property description thoroughly, but I honestly thought the bedroom was located up the iron steps off the dining room! It was such a relief to me when I opened the door to find the bedroom on the same level to the rest of the property. I didn’t go upstairs as it said private, which I respected, but I wonder if there is another bedroom up those stairs?

September 2020

The location is amazing , the property really comfortable and the owners very helpful! And we had great weather in one word it was perfect.

August 2020

I would love to recommend the property. I would gladly live there all year round if it were possible. The most wonderful sea view in the UK. Very comfortable and fully equipped.

September 2019

Praxis is an incredible place. The cottage is wonderful, the housekeeper works very hard to prepare the place with flowers, wine and provisions for guests. The interior is comfortable and very tastefully decorated and the view out to sea from the balcony doors is just amazing. We love it.

July 2019

It is a lovely space for 2 people

July 2019

The location is everything and forget anything else. Wonderful place.

May 2019

Beautifully situated flat, there is no where in Cornwall that has better views.

May 2019

The location can’t be beaten, it has the most amazing views. Sitting on the balcony watching the waves roll in is wonderful.

Thanks so much for your review. There's nothing quite like watching our Cornish seas - perhaps we could welcome you back in the winter as Praxis makes the perfect location for storm watching and you'll always be toasty warm with your wood-burner! Tressa, Customer Support

Pros: The property was very clean and had almost everything we needed for our stay. The bed was really comfortable. A bottle of wine put out for was a very nice touch. The view was marvellous and the walks, although challenging as access to the coast path is very steep, they are worth climbing for the views. It is in a good location and all in all was a very nice slightly quirky property. It is also has the added benefit of a Hotel/Pub a few steps away that serves great food with a marvelous terrace and sea views.

Cons: Zero phone signal on both our phones while in the property and down in the valley. No freezer in kitchen. Draughty in the living room when it was windy. Noisy immersion heater coming on and off during the night.

We were delighted to hear that you found Praxis, with those fantastic sea views, to be clean and comfortable. We do appreciate that due to the location, mobile signal can be limited here but we hope that the landline was useful. For future reference, we do list the coverage of each mobile phone provider under the "Technology" section of our "Things You Should Know", found on the Classic Cottages home page. A freezer is not currently advertsied at this property but we appreciate that it would be a useful addition. We're sorry to hear that you found the immersion heater noisy at times and that you noticed a draught in the living room and we will certainly ask that these areas are checked.

Probably the best sea view in the country. Ideally located next to the friendly Port William pub with a nice atmosphere and good food. The house is lovely with a private patio area and the double doors in the lounge area open up so that it almost feels like the waves are breaking into the room. Well equipped kitchen and a comfy bed. The decor is absolutely fine in my opinion. Very handy parking space as well.

It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and that you liked the decor too. We welcome feedback from all our guests, and whilst we know opinions can vary, each one is valuable in helping us offer the best holidays that we can. It's great that you made use of the pub on the doorstep, and very much hope to welcome you back again to enjoy that spectacular view in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

March 2019

Five stars for the location and ability to relax with no wifi or phone reception but four stars overall

February 2019

A stunning location, but the property is in desperate need of updating. The listing for the property doesn't make it clear that it is actually the top floor of a 3 storey terraced house.

Reply from Classic Cottages

It's great to see that you enjoyed the location, and we're grateful for your thoughts on the furniture. We've inspected this popular little property since your stay and have made some recommendations as to how any visible wear and tear can be addressed so a good interior standard is maintained. Thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support

October 2018

This property offers one of the best sea views anywhere in the UK...and probably further afield than that.

August 2018

We'd love to come back in the future.

May 2018

The flat is in a perfect location. Stunning views from the balcony and living and dining areas. A friendly pub with good food and coastal views just yards away. Private parking a bonus.

May 2018

Splendid, wonderful, awesome and more.

September 2017

Praxis is in an absolutely beautiful location with stunning views of the sea. Even in poor weather, you can sit looking out over the dramatic waves - just wonderful and in good weather the sunsets are incredible. The interior of the apartment is lovely, decorated and furnished with thought and care. We cannot recommend this holiday home enough.

July 2017

Stunning, simply stunning!

June 2017

Fantastic position and views, really enjoyed our stay

April 2017

Praxis is really lovely, in a great spot. We loved being next to the costal path.

December 2016

If you want a holiday in the most stunning of locations, Praxis is a wonderful choice. Trebarwith Strand is tiny and gorgeous - and the views from the balcony, terrace and windows of Praxis are truly magical. A real treat ... A read through the visitors books reveals that everyone agrees - and almost all return again and again. We have just enjoyed our fifth holiday there.

November 2016

We have been visiting Trebarwith Strand for nearly 40 years and have stayed in almost all of the properties that were once part of the former hotel. Praxis has always been our favourite because of its location. Any negatives are far outweighed by the pleasure gained from a staying in such a beautiful place.

October 2016

A gorgeous setting for this cottage. A cosy cottage with a welcoming feel. The property does need updating but overall a lovely stay.

September 2016

Stunning location. Can't fault it.

September 2016

The views from the balcony are simply breathtaking, a stay at Praxis transports you to another world of beach and relaxation. There are also great walks on the doorstep and the pub up the road offers a warm welcome.

July 2016

Wonderful location Warm comfy and cosy Comfortable bed hard to get up No complaints really Love it back soon!!!!!!

June 2016

We arrived at Praxis & were truly blown away with the location , the cleanliness & the hospitality shown by the owners in their welcome gifts to both of us & our two Westies. An ideal spot to unwind or seek out adventures on the many walks around the Atlantic coastline. Too many to cover in one visit so another stay at Praxis will be needed!!

May 2016

Praxis is just stunning - so stylish, cosy and quirky! It's location and views are totally magical.

April 2016

This 'cottage' is really a flat, but that does not detract from the holiday one bit. It is in an excellent position overlooking a small bay and beach at low tide.

April 2016

Beautiful location. Lovely accommodation with lovely views.

February 2016

Classic Cottages are Fab. The service is friendly and efficient. The website easy and accessible to use. The cottage is well appointed and good value for money.

February 2016

Wonderful position and fantastic view, very comfortable & well equipped. Only downside was only being able to get onto the beach briefly each afternoon due to the tides, other than that our stay was perfect!!

Reply from Classic Cottages

It's great to hear you had such a good time at Praxis - Trebarwith Strand is a tidal beach so, as you found, there is little sand at high tide (although you do get to enjoy a whole mile of beach at low tide!). You can check the local tide forecast at www.cornwall-beaches.co.uk, or watch the local weather reports for more information. Tanya, Customer Support

November 2015

Stunning location. all pictures give an accurate view of property and location

September 2015

Our third year in a row at Praxis...and we still love this little dream of an apartment. Superb location...superb accommodation and will always have a place in our hearts.

would be 5 stars but we do not agree with high deposit fee required.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Praxis, it's great to see you enjoyed your time there. We appreciate your comments re the deposit - we do ask for one third of the rent, but we have been trialling a new scheme for advance bookings ie made when our Web site goes live in July for bookings in the following year; we take a smaller non-refundable deposit to secure a reservation, with the remainder of the one-third payable in the September. Please ask our Booking Office if this is of interest to you. Tanya, Customer Support

August 2015

Unconventional design of cottage which added to the interest and enjoyment in a fantastic location .

June 2015

if you want a relaxing stress free break go to Praxis in Trebarwith Strand. you will not be disappointed the view is breathtakingly beautiful and you will be amazed of the facilities that are on offer.

Pub (where you take your dog) yards away Beach (where you can take your dog) yards away cafe that do an amazing crab sandwich yards away shop selling fresh doughnuts yards away what more does a girl need

May 2015

A perfect retreat for one of the best get-away holidays in the UK. Even if the weather isn't perfect just sitting watching the waves is a tonic in itself. Its proximity to some of the most stunning and beautiful coves and pretty villages anywhere is a real bonus. And we really appreciated the welcome of bread, milk, biscuits, wine and pretty flowers.

April 2015

a little gem and cannot recommend more highly.

March 2015

Lovely cottage and location

February 2015
